Notes

I have not listened to this in ages, in anyway shape or form, so I don't know if
the drums were cut or not. I know Jeff was the kind of guy that if the tape ran
out he'd skip them. The Terrapin jam is here and then pickups pretty much with
I Will Take You Home.

This was the last show I ever attended. It was the only one of the
whole Cap Centre run that I saw.

The AUDs on here offer a satisfactory rendering of the show; this review is in lieu of the sbd / Limited release, which does sound absolutely exquisite (check Bobby on the right channel!)

Set 1 is prime....Sugaree DEFINITELY owns the weight of this set - everything else kind of flies in its wake. I don't know why the crowd deems it necessary to howl approval after every single blooming line of Tom Thumb's Blues...this is a case where a sbd really is a better go.

Set 2 - The Terrapin here, with the so-called Mock Turtle Jam (read "Alice in Wonderland", yo) is absolutely as epic in scope and scale as you think - supreme Event Music.

Wharf Rat. Wow, jesus - if you ever are getting fatigued by the sheer number of times you've heard it, dust it off with this one - THIS is the rat come to life. Even Throwing Stones gets in on the action - what a buildup to the jam!

Alas, Revolution can't keep the air in the balloon - Jerry often had trouble with that one. But by that time we've had our brain washed, tumble-dried, and polished to a high sheen - you'll be left more than satisfied when NFA fades on out.

Subject: Top AUD, All-Time Great Show
This is just one man's opinion, but imho, this is the top AUD source available for 3/15/90. This source is a great mix of very crisp and clean instruments/vocals and the deep resonance & reverb that the best AUDs feature. This source also offers very present and fun crowd noise that do not inhibit the music at all. Excellent AUD, Epic show.

March 1990 featured 13 shows, the worst of which probably rates about 7.5-8/10, while the top shows are slam dunk 10/10. To my ears, at least 7 of March 90's shows are a 9/10, and this is definitely one of them. It may be just a sliver beneath 3/24 and 3/29, but it is still an absolute must hear.

Subject: Incredible, sick, awesome! Seven stars at least!
I don't know if this is the recording that I downloaded, but this show is close to the best I've ever heard. If it IS this recording, then the sound is beyond belief for an AUD. Brilliant.

I checked Althea and it's in a different key here than it is on the other version, so something's wrong somewhere.
